BEAUTY BAR: Mauvelous Makeup

The summer season typically entails of crisp white clothes, a golden tan and bronzed makeup to finish. While that classic style suits the season perfectly, this Fashionista opts out of the cookie cutter look. Branching out from the usual bronze and gold shades is a fun and unique way to switch things up. She utilizes a mauve toned eyeshadow color palette, which enhances this Fashionista’s rich brown eyes making them pop. This look is perfect for everyone, especially beginners, as liner is not necessary. The focus, rather, is on long separated lashes further enhancing the eyes. This Fashionista sticks with bronzed cheeks as well as a satin blush that gives off a golden glow to the face. No summer makeup is complete without a highlight on the cheekbones completing that glow. The makeup look is topped off with a glossy pinky-peach lip color perfect for summer.

Sticking in the purple color family, makeup is not the only thing creative for this Fashionista. Her periwinkle fingernails pop with a unique design. The coffin shaped nails is right on trend alongside the unique design. The hairstyle is in big loose curls matching the season perfectly. Diverging from typical summer whites, this Fashionista’s black outfit still works for the summer season. Her mini black dress is perfect, because it is lightweight and includes the popular lace-up detail. The lace-up gladiator sandals coordinate seamlessly with the dress and continue to follow right on trend.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To achieve this makeup look, use an eye shadow palette that includes mauve colors. Place the darker shades on the outer third of the eyelid almost in a “V” shape. Use a mid-tone color on the eyelid and brighten up the eyes with the lightest shade in the inner corner. For the skin, sweep a bronzer with sheen over the cheeks and top it off with a highlighting powder on the high point of the cheekbones—now you’re ready to glow! Use a high-shine lip-gloss in order to attain a similar vibrant pout. Spritz a makeup setting spray in the shape of an “X” over the face as the final step for longer wear, especially during those hot summer days.
